Black Wealth: Atlanta, Georgia

30.00

Atlanta, Georgia, nicknamed the Black Mecca, is known as the center of Black Wealth. Because of the concentration of slaves, the post-civil war era gave African-American's an advantage in coming together and creating a society to thrive. Although divided in the beginning, the city eventually unified under one cause "Black Education and Empowerment." This led to the founding of numerous Historically Black Colleges and Universities such as Clark Atlanta University, Morehouse College, and Spelman College. 

These colleges have led to the creation of a strong Black Upper Class in the United States. Many of the individuals from these institutions have gone and continue to influence United States policy, Civil Rights, and culture. 

Home to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and many more legendary individuals, Atlanta continues to be the center of Black Wealth in America. 

Today we remember the history, celebrate the present, and continue to honor Atlanta's contribution to the advancement of Blacks in America.
